Foxtail Millet Pesarattu

For week 3 of BM #48 I have chosen to showcase 'Nashta' dishes. Nashta, for me means breakfast or evening snack or even some kind of a brunch.

For day 1, here is a healthy breakfast with millets and moong dal. 

Ingredients - 

Foxtail Millet 1/2 cup
Moong Dal 1 cup
Salt as needed
Ginger 1/2 inch
Green Chillies 2-3 as needed
Coriander leaves few
Onion, Chopped 1/2 cup
Oil to spray

Method Of Preparation -

Soak the foxtail millet and moong dal for 3-4 hours. (I soaked overnight).

Drain and grind into a fine batter adding ginger, green chillies, coriander leaves and water as needed.

On a hot griddle / tawa, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into a thin circle. Sprinkle finely chopped onions on it, spray a little oil all over and let it cook.

Flip it onto the other side until cooked.

Remove and continue with the rest of the batter. 

Serve it hot with a chutney of your choice.

Preparation Time 15 min + Soaking Time a minimum of 4 hrs.
